Our current V4R4 box contains our data files and in-house written rpg, cl, service pgms, binded directories, etc. We have all our source code. We have no 3rd party software, all is in-house code. We are about to buy a used V6R1 box. I know there is some sort of costly 3 step migration for this. But I need to ask. Can I do the following... Can I restore my V4R4 data files from a backup tape to the V6R1 box? Will the V6R1 box accept the file? If so, can I then restore by source code(rpg, cl, service pgm bind dirs, etc) & then recompile them to create the objects on the new box? Keep in mind, all our code is in-house rpg, cl, etc. I am trying to avoid the costs of the migration.
